Press release date: May 03, 2017

Revolutionary High-Performance Finish is Now in Stores

Rockaway, N.J. - Pettit Marine Paint, leading manufacturer of high performance marine coatings, announced today Black Widow, the highest-performance racing finish, is now available. The slickest, fastest, ultra-smooth burnishable racing finish on the market, Black Widow is also a powerful dual-biocide bottom paint that provides multi-season protection in all waters.

“We knew producing a finish like Black Widow was going to revolutionize the bottom coating industry,” said Don Zabransky, vice president sales & marketing, Pettit Marine Paint. “We had no idea that we would have this kind of reception. Our customers that have already taken delivery of the product are really excited with the performance. Black Widow offers a clean boat bottom for maximum efficiency and the slickest paint available, taking high-performance to a whole new level.”

Easily applied by roller, brush or spray, and burnishable to a metallic “gun-metal” shine, Black Widow makes an excellent paint for the bottom of any boat where speed is the number one priority. Racing sailboats, bass boats, personal watercraft and high performance offshore powerboats and superyachts will benefit from Black Widow’s four strong slickening agents: Molybdenum Disulfide, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Graphite and Silicon – all powerful lubricants that reduce drag. This translates into greater speeds and lower fuel consumption. The durable coating resists the elements and the slick finish is easy to clean.

Pricing and Availability:

Black Widow is available in gallon cans for $279 from fine marine supply stores and boatyards throughout the United States.
